Barbara Heck pioneered in the founding of Methodism in New York and Upper Canada. Following her death in 1804, she was buried in this place. A frame chapel, called the "Blue Church," was erected here five years later. It burned in 1840, and this small church was built in 1845.

No doubt, this build is very nice. The composition is a perfect tribute in honour of Barbara Heck. Congratulations.

Thank you, Eva and Pepe.

This and the Hay Bay church picture following it are what I think of as "Panoramio photos." When Panoramio has few or no pictures of a place that I thinks deserves to be seen, I sometimes post pictures that I don't think of as special. They are just respectable shots, but they show places that are worth seeing! Greetings, Marilyn

Indeed, this and the Hay Church were both WELL worth seeing and learning about.

No better person to photograph them for Panoramio than YOU! :)

I have enjoyed them both very much, and thank you again.

Nicely toned shot marilyn: the blue theme beautifully carried through into the image.

Thank you, Sean. I've often wondered why, so long ago, they painted the church blue! But it is very nice.

Best wishes, Marilyn
